4.0 out of 5 stars Post-divorce "joie de vivre", Chilean style March 1, 2014
Format:DVD
"Gloria" (2013 release from Chile; 100 min.) brings the story of Gloria (played by Paulina Garcia), a fifty-something divorced woman. As the movie opens, we find Gloria in a dance club with Donna Summer's "I Feel Love" blasting away. Gloria is alone, but certainly not lonely. She loves to dance, and she attracts the attention of others. Pretty soon, Gloria makes the acquaintance of Rodolfo, a sixty-something who is also divorced, yet emotionally still close to his ex-wife and even more so his two grown daughters. Meanwhile, we get to also know Gloria's grown kids: her son Pedro is taking care of a new baby, and her daughter Ana is involved with her boyfriend from Sweden. To tell you much more would spoil your viewing experience, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

Several comments: first, this is one great 'little' movie about the free-spirited Gloria. One can't help but marvel at the "joie de vivre" which Gloria lives by, even if things are not always easy or don't always go her way. Second, what can you say about the towering performance from Paulina Garcia in the title role! She is in virtually every frame of the movie, and she will blow you away. She brings a daring performance on every level. Co-star Sergio Hernandez as romantic interest Rodolfo is pretty good too. Beware: there are a number of nude scenes between these two, which may make uncomfortable viewing for some. I must say that I am surprised--and disappointed--that Paulina Garcia, who has won a number of international prizes for this performance (including "Best Actress" at the 2013 Berlin Film Festival, where this movie premiered), did not even get nominated for a Best Actress Oscar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life isn't over at 50 April 29, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I LOVED this movie. I was eagerly awaiting it to come to Amazon and rented immediately once it was. I'll grant that the pace or length may be off-putting to some, but it was just my cup of tea. I thought it was well done and brought an added depth and richness to the character and what she and her life are like, what she's going through, trying to find herself, be herself, as a now single "woman of a certain age." I do love the end, that she comes back to herself and realizes she can live and embrace life in full joy without a man. That said, I don't want that to be the end of her story, that a life alone is all that is left.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful movie about post-divorce love in Santiago February 28, 2014
Format:DVD
Paulina García deserves all her awards and recognition for her portrayal of Gloria, a fiftysomething woman living alone whose grown children and dull job need a little of her attention, but not much. Her real life is at the nightclubs where she dances and flirts, drinks and dreams, and meets Rodolfo, a handsome but slightly fishy recent divorcé, who shows her the best of good times but is constantly distracted by his former life. In some scenes García looks tired and even older than her years; in others she's lithe, stylish, sexy, radiant, aglow with vitality and her indefatigable faith in romance--even the riskiest of romances. As my father said after he saw it, "All women are beautiful." You'll want to have dinner with Gloria's conversationally and musically gifted friends, and you'll want to go out dancing with Gloria.

4.0 out of 5 stars Life in the raw June 30, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
At 58, Gloria is in the midst of a midlife crisis. Divorced and with a seemingly strained relationship with her adult children, Gloria is also coping with a mundane job, a potentially psychotic upstairs neighbor, and days on end of perpetual loneliness (and, oh yes, a creepy hairless cat that keeps coming over for a visit). Until, that is, she meets Rodolpho, a divorced ex-naval officer, who has the opposite problem from Gloria: he’s TOO intimately involved with the lives of his grown daughters, so much so that he is unable to devote the time needed to nurture his relationship with Gloria.

On the surface, “Gloria” feels like most of the other midlife crisis films we’ve seen, but the strength of this Chilean/Spanish co-production lies in its naturalism and in its focus on revelatory detail. Writer Gonzalo Maza and writer/director Sebastian Lelio provide enough specifics to make this a very particular story about a very particular woman. That manages to keep Gloria a sympathetic figure even when her understandable unhappiness begins to slide over into self-pity. The movie also refuses to tie its story up in a nice, neat little bow at the end to cater to audience expectations.

Paulina Garcia won a number of awards, all richly deserved, for her nuanced, fully-developed portrayal of a woman whose life is all but put under a microscope for all the world to see. Yet, Garcia meets the challenge with a bravery rare for actresses her age. Sergio Hernandez matches her as the man who comes into Gloria’s life but who may be bringing plenty of his own baggage right along with him.

Yet, for all its insight into late-in-life romance, the movie ultimately reveals that middle-aged lovers are often every bit as petulant, jealous and overly sensitive - not to mention, clueless - as the greenest teen when it comes to affairs of the heart. Some things just never change, I guess.

2.0 out of 5 stars Something wrong? May 11, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Don't bother unless you can speak Spanish. The English sub-titles only cover about half the dialog, and since there is not much here BUT dialog, you'll miss half the movie. Never seen a movie with sub-titles this bad, I have to say.
